Test results... input please

My test scores are the following:

TSH 0.168 Range 0.450-4.500
T4 10.6. Range 4.5-12.0
T3 134. Range 71-180
FT4 1.51. Range 0.82-1.77
FT3 4.0. Range 2.0-4.4

The question I have is.....Am I over medicated? I still don't feel right. I take 150 mcg of Synthroid. Tks

Re: Test results...input please

On the face of it, your FT results look pretty good, but you certainly could be a bit overmedicated if those aren't your particular "normal". A former member here who was a thyroid guru who happened to be male used to say that men's optimal levels tend to be slightly lower than women's... That men's are just above mid-range while women's average in the upper third.

Since your TSH is so low, and your FTs higher than mid-range, a small dose decrease might be worth a try.
